    Ellis is excellent

    There are more ways to recover than the 12 step groups. This book deals with the faulty thinking that can lead any addict into relapse mode. For those who have problems w 12 step groups for whatever reason and for those in 12 step recovery who are not threatened by other ways of doing things.

    When Nothing Else Works

    I don't disagree with the book's contention, that there are other ways to quit drinking besides AA. But the book does approach the spiritual angle, that is, the mindset that makes an alcoholic pick up a drink again and again. However, whether you believe in AA or not, the best thing alcoholics can do to end the isolation, loneliness and fear is to talk to other alcoholics daily. Whether you do that in AA or not doesn't matter. It's great to have the tools of this book and recovering alcoholics to help you everyday. Begin living again. Thanks for the great advice in this book.

    Outstanding!

    What I like best about this book is that it gives you so many tools. Tools that help you be honest with yourself about your addiction (whatever it may be) and help you cope with urges. Most tools are based on the assumption that you CAN changge your current thinking and beliefs. The tools in this book can also be applied to other problem areas in your life.
